Big box or local stop? You probs already know this, but shopping local can get you all the same services + wares as chain stores BUT with added perks like boosting your local economy, supporting people you know + love, and experiences tailored specifically to YOU.

Towny is your free guide to ONLY local businesses, so next time you’re out and about, consider hitting up one of these hometown hot spots! Grab it + get going!


  • Osage Creek Clothing Company: the land of “casual luxury menswear.” AKA the perfect place to do a little holiday shopping for your fella, especially if he just shrugs his shoulders when you ask him for his wish list. From classy dress shirts to funky personality socks, this place is flooded with quality men’s clothing + top notch customer service. Kill that style, local style!

  • For the girls who just wanna have fun, a shopping spree at Scarlet Rose Boutique is in order! Prepare yourself for their robust selection of trendy clothes, accessories + gifts. We promise not to judge you for trying on every outfit they have to offer the world. They are definitely THAT cute.

  • Whether you’re looking for that perfect something to stick under the Christmas tree or liven up your room, Midtown Mall has it all. Part flea market, part consignment store, and part booth mall, Midtown Mall has no shortage of fun, quirky, and seasonal items for every part of your life and home.


  • Sometimes, the best “treat yoself”-ing takes place in the comfort of your own home. Before you draw up a bath + light the candles, shimmy over to Bathetopia Bath Boutique for all your pampering needs. They offer a selection of non-toxic bath + body products like bath bombs, lotions, shampoos and scrubs, even beard oil! And the best part: you have the option to create your own fragrance blends so that your spa day smells like something out of a dream!

  • On the other hand, if you prefer to sit back and let the pampering happen to you, we recommend a little rendezvous with Lavande Nail Bar. Dazzle your admirers with some nail art worthy of the walls of the Met. Their list of services also includes waxing and lash lifting, so you can walk out that door feeling even fresher than your new polish.


  • Bentonville Copy + Ship is more than just a place to drop off boxes to mail, although with Christmas around the corner, keep them in mind for your shipping needs! Their range of services also include printing of ALL variety (even on canvas so you can customize your own artwork!) and designing print materials like banners, menus, and business cards. And if they don’t have a service you need? Ask them to add it! They’re all about serving YOU.

  • If you’ve got a car, you need a mechanic! At Garcia’s Auto, you can expect a full range of car-tinkering services like oil changes, detailing, and everything they need. If you’re looking for a car, you need another kind of car fairy. Lucky for you, Garcia’s Auto can be that for you, too! Between their impressive selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs, and their passion for their business, car buying will be a breeeeze.
